ACKNOWLEDGMENT 



The acreage, production and value statistics in this bulletin are official State and 
USDA estimates prepared by the Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. The county 
and area detail were made possible by the participation of the Department of Food and Re- 
source Economics, University of Florida, in the estimating program. The Bureau of State 
Markets, Florida Department of Agriculture, and the County Extension Agents, University 
of Florida's Cooperative Extension Service, were also very helpful in supplying area and 
county information. Shipment statistics were provided by the Market News sections of the 
Florida Department of Agriculture and the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service. 

Grower organizations have provided valuable assistance and data througliout the 
season. These groups include the Florida Celery Committee, Florida Tomato Committee, 
Florida Sweet Com Exchange, South Florida Vegetable Exchange, Zellwood Sweet Com Ex- 
change, and North Florida Growers Exchange. Sales agencies and transportation firms pro- 
vided the inputs necessary to complete the statistical story. 

Foremost, the growers, shippers and processors volunteered most of the basic data 
used in developing these official statistics. The public spirited cooperation of these individ- 
uals and groups is appreciated 

Fieldmen James Spires, hnmokalee; Charles Robertson, Homestead; Wallace Jacobs, 
North Palm Beach; and Larry Amlong of Palmetto collected much of the basic acreage, pro- 
duction and price statistics in this bulletin. This report was assembled under the direction of 
Harvey L. Batchelor, Gerald H, Moody and Carl A. Ou/ts of the Florida Crop and Livestock 
Reportmg Service and E. F. Scarborough, Bureau of Market News. The authors also wish to 
thank Becky Altman, Ray Crickenberger, Laverne Dobbs, Evelyn Faust, Kitty Hildreth, 
Wanda Hodges, Janet Meyer, Barbara Palmer, Jerry Sauer, Tommy Scherer, Cindy Wright 
and others of the Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Service who assisted in compiling 
and preparmg this report.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



QUARTERLY GROUPS- -During the growing sea- 
son, estimates were prepared for most crops on a calen- 
dar quarter basis in order to indicate available supplies 
for shorter periods of time than the entire crop year. The 
Fall, Winter and Spring quarterly estimates are combin- 
ed into a crop year total for all crops. Production sold 
or utilized is shown by months. 

PLANTED ACREAGE is the total acreage which 
has been planted for harvest during one designated quarter. 
Acreage lost and replanted to the same crop in time for 
harvest in the samequarter, is counted only once. Acre- 
age harvested and planted again to the same crop is count- 
ed twice. 

HARVESTED ACREAGE is the acreage partially 
or completely harvested. Acreage lost before or at ma- 
turity through natural or economic causes is not included 
in the acreage for harvest. 

YIELD is the average production per acre of mer- 
chantable quality harvested and sold or utilized. 

PRODUCTION is the quantity actually harvested 
and sold or utilized. 

UNIT VALUE for fresh market sales is the equiv- 
alentprice received, f. o.b. shipping point basis and en- 
compasses all grades and sizes marketed or utilized. 
Included are packing charges, selling charges, precool- 
ing, top ice, or other costs which contribute to the val- 
ue of the product at shipping point. The value per 
unit for quantities sold to processors is the average value 
paid for usable quantities, on a "delivered to plant door" 
basis. This value includes transportation and other nor- 
mal costs incident to delivery at plant door. 

TOTAL VALUE is the equivalent value of produc- 
tion sold or utilized based on the unit value. Cullage and 



otherquantities not sold or utilized because of natural or 
economic factors are excluded. 

OTHER COUNTIES include harvested acreage for 
all counties for which either published data would result 
in the disclosure ofindividual operations or acreage totals 
for specific commodities are of minor importance in the 
State. 

Beginning with the 1977-78 crop season, all ship- 
ments and unloads, _rail_,_truck, air and boat, are record- 
ed nationally in 10,000 pound units each day. Annual re- 
leases are in 1, 000 cwt. In this publication shipments and 
unloads for some commodities were converted to most 
common trading units. Rail and piggyback weights and 
conversion factors were determined by several Market 
News Service field offices. Mixed car (rail) loadings by 
stations have been prorated by commodities. 

Where possible the national Market News Service 
in Washington, D. C. has established a sin^e un if or m 
weight per commodity to be used nationally in converting 
to weight units for the various means of transportation. 
Weights per common container used and number of units 
per rail car or truck may be obtained by writing the MNS 
office in Winter Park, Florida. 

PRODUCTION AND PRICE UNIT— The official 
USDA vegetable crop estimates are published on a weight 
basis. For this bulletin, the official estimates for most 
vegetable crops have been converted to what is believed 
to be the most commonly used containers. If changes in 
container weights are necessary, all data pertaining to 
the production of the commodity in question is revised to 
maintain comparability between years. The table below 
gives the net weight used per container and the number of 
containers per hundredweight.

SUMMARY OF THE 1978-79 VEGETABLE SEASON 



The farm value of Florida grown vegetables, melons, 
potatoes and strawberries sold totaled a record $758.3 mil- 
lion, up SI 26.1 million from the 1977-78 crop year. Acre- 
age harvested decreased 1 percent from the previous year. 
Crops showing the greatest gains in harvested acres were 
beans for processing, eggplant, lettuce, squash and straw- 
berries. Crops increasing in value were snap beans, cabbage, 
celery, sweet com, cucumbers, eggplant, lettuce, green 
peppers, squash, tomatoes, "other vegetables", watermelons 
and strawberries. Crops with lower values than the pre- 
vious year were escarole, potatoes and radishes. Most of the 
declines were due to lower season average prices. Tomatoes, 
which rose S3 7.9 million, showed the greatest increase in 
value followed by cabbage which increased S22.0 million; 
"other vegetables," $14.9 million; lettuce, $10.8 million; 
cucumbers, $10.4 million and celery $8.0 million from a 
year ago. 

Average yields for snap beans, celery, cucumbers, 
cabbage, lettuce, green peppers, potatoes, radishes, 
tomatoes and strawberries increased during the year but 
yields declined for eggplant, sweet com, escarole, squash 
and watermelons. 

Season average prices of cabbage, sweet com, cu- 
cumbers, eggplant, green peppers, squash, tomatoes, water- 
melons and strawberries were hi^er than a year ago. 
Season average prices for snap beans, celery, escarole, 
lettuce, potatoes and radishes were below a year ago. 

Land preparation, planting and transplanting were 
very active in most areas of the state during July. Growing 
conditions were generally good to excellent over most of 
the farming areas during August. Planting activity pro- 
gressed favorably. Some damage to plants in low areas due 
to heavy rains occuned in late August and early Septem- 
ber. Rainfall amounts were variable, averaging from 1 to 4 
inches in general to as much as 6 inches in some areas. 
Numerous cold fronts accompanied by showers made up 
the weather picture during much of October and Novem- 
ber. Planting and harvest activities were interrupted. 

Temperatures were generally rrald during most of 
December. A cold front moved through the southern farm- 
ing areas about midmonth. The front was accompanied by 
showers, some locally heavy. The Jupiter area received from 
8 to 10 inches of rainfall while other areas received less 
than an inch. A low pressure front stalled over the south- 
em farming areas the last of the month. Scattered hail was 
reported in some areas. 



Much of January was characterized by numerous cold 
fronts and temperatures ta the 30's and 40's. The fronts 
were accompanied by strong winds and scattered, hght 
showers. Precipitation was variable, ranging from a trace to 
2-1/2 inches in some areas. 



Cold weather and near freezing temperatures dom- 
inated the month of February. Several cold fronts moved 
through the vegetable growing areas, dropping nighttime 
temperatures into the low 30's. Damage to crops was gen- 
erally Ught and confined mostiy to Ught foliage bum. 

Temperatures moderated somewhat in the farming 
areas in March, although cold fronts lowered nighttime tem- 
peratures into the 40's. Rainfall was generally Ught to mod- 
erate. Daytime temperatures were in the 70's and 80's. 

During April, the weather picture consisted of sunny 
days and mild nights. From the first of the month to about 
midmonth negUgible amounts of rain fell. A weak cold 
front moved through the southern vegetable growing areas 
the last of the month. Rainfall was variable, averaging from 
1 to 16 inches. The front was accompanied by very strong 
and gusty winds of up to 50 miles per hour. Harvest was in 
full swing for some crops while others were declining sea- 
sonally. 

The month of May was characterized by cloudy skies 
and numerous showers and thundershowers in central and 
southern vegetable growing areas. Rainfall averaged from 1 
to 4 inches. Daytime temperatures were in 70's and 80's 
with nighttime lows in the 60's and low 70's. Harvest was 
very active for some vegetables while declining for others. 

Hot days and warm nights dominated the weather 
picture during June in the vegetable growing areas. Some 
aftemoon and evening scattered showers occurred and were 
more numerous towards the end of the month. Precipita- 
tion averaged from a few tenths to one inch but was locally 
heavy in some areas. The water table was lower than normal 
at the end of June. Crops were generally fair to very good 
in most areas. 

Most of the weather data for this summary was sup- 
plied through the National Weather Service, U.S. Depart- 
ment of Commerce, RuskLn, Florida. Information on 
affects of weather on crops was provided by the Florida 
Crop and Livestock Reporting Service fieldmen.

SNAP BEANS 
1978-79 



Florida growers produced 6.3 million bushels of bush 
and pole beans during the 1978-79 season for fresh and proc- 
essing utihzation, up 14 percent from last year. Acreage 
harvested for fresh and processing totaled 54,100 acres, up 
6 percent from the 51,000 acres harvested during the pre- 
vious season. The average yield for the 1978-79 season was 
102 bushels per acre for fresh and 163 bushels per acre for 
processing, as compared with 101 bushels and 133 bushels 
per acre, respectively, the previous year. 

The average f.o.b. price of $7.58 per bushel for fresh 
market was 48 cents more than the previous year and a re- 
cord high. At $2.22 per bushel, snap beans for processing 
are down 26 cents from last season. Total value, at $36.2 
miUion, was 1 percent above last year. 

Bush beans are grown in all areas of Florida with the 
exception of the east central and southwest areas. The 
southeast continues to be the major producing area. Pole 
beans are produced primarily in Dade County, with a small 
acreage grown in Gadsden and Marion counties and west 
central areas. 



Earliest fall supplies of snap beans originate from 
West Florida. The north and west central areas, the Ever- 
glades and southeastern districts also provide fall produc- 
tion. The southeast is the sole source of supply during the 
winter. The other areas resume production in the spring. 

Snap bean production extended from late September 
into mid June. The fall crop peaked in November, followed 
by a shght decline in marketings in December and a drop in 
January and February. Production began to increase in 
March, and the spring crop peaked in April. Twenty-one 
percent of the marketings occurred in April, down one 
point from April the previous year. 

Variable weather influenced last year's bean crop. 
Heavy early to mid-October rains in the southeast washed 
beds and leached fertilizer, necessitating moderate reseeding. 
Eharing the winter season, strong, cold winds whipped 
plants and burned tender foHage and pin beans. Weather 
during the spring season was generally favorable. Strong 
winds at times caused light bum to foUage and some fruit 
scarring. QuaUty and yields were generally good to very 
good for the spring season. 



CABBAGE 
1978-79 



Florida's cabbage growers produced 8.4 million crates 
and sacks during the 1978-79 season. The gross value was 
$51.9 miUion, an increase of 8 percent from the previous 
record of $48.2 million set during the 1976-77 season. The 
average f.o.b. price was $6.17 per crate or sack, up $1.58 
from the $4.59 received last year but 36 cents less than 
the record high set during the 1976-77 season. 

Total acres planted amounted to 18,300 ~ up 3 per- 
cent from the previous season. Acreage harvested totaled 
17,800, an increase of 8 percent from the year before. 
Yields were higher than a year ago and averaged 472 crates 
per acre, up 77 crates and the highest since the 1975-76 
season. 

Cabbage was available for market beginning in late 
November and continuing through June. Sales were above 
normal for the fall period and the highest since the 1971-72 
season. The peak month was January, followed closely by 
April, while February and March were tied for third. 



The Hastings area, which includes Flagler, Putnam 
and St. Johns counties continued as the state's largest pro- 
ducing area, accounting for 52 percent of the state's pro- 
duction. St. Johns County led all other counties in acreage 
with nearly 28 percent of the total acres harvested in the 
state. 

Direct seeding and early transplanting got underway 
by late August and early September. The most active period 
for transplanting was from October through December 
while direct seeding in fields occurred between August and 
November. Only a small percentage of the total acreage 
planted is seeded direct in fields. 

First cuttings began in early November. Harvest in- 
creased rapidly during January and then slowed a Uttle 
through February and March. Winter production accounted 
for 55 percent of the total crop. Volume was heavy in April 
but total spring production was down sharply from the pre- 
vious spring.

CARROTS 
1978-79 



Production of carrots in Florida continued to gain 
during the year. There were 1,177,000 cwt. shipped out of 
state for both fresh use and processing. Fresh market use 
constituted 74 percent and processing 26 percent. This 
compares with 79 percent fresh and 21 percent processing 
the previous year. Of the carrots shipped for fresh market, 
17 percent were the mini type and 83 percent were regular. 
Carrots are not part of the regular statistical program in 
Florida, therefore, data on acreage and production are not 
published separately. However, data are included in "other 
vegetables." 



The muck soils around Lake Apopka, near Zellwood 
and the Everglades provide a good medium for growth. By 
far the majority of carrots are grown in the Zellwood area. 
The mini or finger carrot movement usually begins in late 
October and is complete by the end of May. Regular size 
carrots are harvested from November through June. The 
peak harvest period last season was mid January to early 
May. The young carrots are subject to cold damage in 
January and February in the Zellwood area. With the ex- 
ception of several cold fronts which lasted only a few days, 
growing conditions were mostly favorable. Size and quality 
were good throughout the season. 



CELERY 
1978-7^ 



Florida celery marketings of 8.4 million crates were 
harvested from 11,700 acres during the 1978-79 growing 
season. The average yield of 695 crates per acre compares 
with 588 crates the previous year. 

Prices averaged lower than the previous year and at 
$6.78 f.o.b. per crate, compared with $7.36 per crate in 
the 1977-78 season. Prices during the fall quarter averag- 
ed above a year earUer, the same for the winter quarter but 
were well below for the spring quarter. The crop was valu- 
ed at S55.1 million, an increase of 17 percent from the 
previous crop year. 

The Everglades, with 88 percent of the harvested 
acreage, was the foremost area of production throughout 
the season. The north central area supplemented by a light 
supply from the Sarasota area, accounted for the remain- 
ing 1 2 percent of acreage and provided a continuous supply 
throughout the season. 

Plant bed preparation and seeding were underway by 
mid June. Transplan tings were gaining momentum by late 
August and increased to a good level by mid September. 
Plantings in the Everglades were winding down by the end 
of March and were complete by early April. Plantings were 
also complete in tiie north central area by the first week of 



April. Growers in the Sarasota area usually plant from Oct- 
ober to March. 

U^t harvest began by late October in the 2^Uwood 
area and by early November in the Everglades. Growing 
conditions were hot and humid in the summer and early 
fall months. Cool weather in November was beneficial for 
growth and development. Quality was generally good 
during most of the season. Yields and size were good and 
averaged above normal. 

No significant damage occurred from cold fronts 
moving into the vegetable growing areas. The spring market 
was generally favorable but prices averaged below the pre- 
vious spring when the market was very good. Approximate- 
ly 5 percent of the crop was not harvested for various 
reasons. Growers passed some acreage in order to maintain 
good quality. 

Celery production was most active during December 
through May. Cutting was completed by July 1 in aU areas. 

Celery is subject to a federal marketing order admin- 
istered by the Florida Celery Committee. Field supervisors 
provide the basic acreage and production data. In coopera- 
tion with the committee, these data are assembled into 
weekly, monthly and aimual reports. 



CHINESE CABBAGE 
1978-79 



Chinese cabbage is grown primarily on the mucklands 
of Zellwood and the Everglades areas. The organic soils 
provide a very good medium for rapid growth. Harvest was 
underway by November. Volume was U^t through Novem- 
ber but increased to good supplies by mid December and 
January. Production reached a peak level in March and 
April. Good volume was available from December through 
mid May. 



During mid April, Zellwood was providing a good 
volume while the Everglades was declining seasonally. The 
season was over by June 1 . Yields and quality were general- 
ly good throughout the season. The winter was relatively 
inild and no significant cold damage occurred. Shipments 
for the season totaled 163,000, down 4 percent from the 
previous year.

SWEET CORN 
1978-79 



Florida, the nation's leading sweet com producer for 
fresh sales, marketed 12.1 million crates during the 1978-79 
season. Production decreased 4 percent from the previous 
year. Growers harvested 54,500 acres, down 4 percent from 
the 56,500 acres harvested during the 1977-78 season. 
Yields averaged 222 crates per acre statewide compared 
with 224 crates per acre a year earlier. Yields have averaged 
above 200 crates per acre for every year since the record 
244 crate average in the 1972-73 crop year. 

The season average f.o.b. price of $4.25 per crate was 
36 cents above the average for the previous year. The total 
value of the crop was $51.4 million, up $2.2 million from 
the $49.2 million received for the 1977-78 crop. The value 
of sweet com ranked fourth in the state in vegetable crops 
and was exceeded only by the value of tomatoes, celery and 
cabbage. 

First plantings of the season were underway in the 
Everglades in July. Seeding on the east coast got underway 
in early October and increased rapidly. Plantings were in- 
terrupted by adverse weather in late October in the east 
coast area. First harvest began in the Everglades in the week 
ended September 16th and reached a fall peak in November. 
The declining harvest in the Everglades during December 



was partially offset by harvest from the lower east coast 
and Dade County. 

Harvest of the spring crop in the Everglades was 
underway by rtrid April. The Everglades became the main 
source of supply in late April as the east coast and Dade 
County began to phase out. The transition of harvest from 
the Everglades to Zellwood occurred in mid May. Lake 
County provided a good volume in June. The season was 
complete in early July. 

A small acreage provided supplemental supplies at 
Zellwood and the west central area during the early fall, 
and at Sarasota in the early spring. 

Weather during the growing season was generally 
favorable. Heavy rains interrupted plantings, washed beds 
and leached fertilizer in some areas during the mid fall 
growing season. In January, heavy rains and strong, cold 
winds affected plant growth, whipped plants and caused 
light to moderate leaf bum in the lower east coast. Strong 
winds and blowing sand caused some damage to young 
plants in the lower east coast in early February. Condi- 
tions for the spring crop were very good. Quahty and 
yields were very good to excellent for most of the season. 



CUCUMBERS 
1978-79 



Florida production of cucumbers for fresh market 
and processing utilization during the 1978-79 crop year was 
over 6.0 million bushels, up 8 percent from the 1977-78 
crop. The fresh market chiumel utilized 80 percent of the 
production and the remaining 20 percent was for processing. 
The 23,300 acres planted was up 200 acres from the pre- 
vious year. Harvested acres totaled 22,000, unchanged from 
a year earlier. Average yield per acre for fresh market, at 
307 bushels, was up 25 bushels from the previous season. 
Cucumbers for processing averaged 187 bushels per acre, as 
compared with 1 77 bushels last year. Total production was 
valued at $37.6 million compared with $27.2 million for 
the previous year. The f.o.b. price for 1978-79 averaged 
$6.65 per bushel for fresh market and $4.73 per bushel for 
processing, as compared with $5.03 and $4.39 per bushel, 
respectively, the previous year. 

Supplies in 1978-79 were generally available from 
September through June, with light marketings in January 
through March. Much of the recorded shipments moving 
out-of-state January through March are from offshore and 
truck imports resold in mixed loads. 



The production of cucumbers is well distributed across 
the state. The southwest area, with 40 percent of the plant- 
ed acreage during 1978-79, is the largest area. The west 
central area accounted for 34 percent of the planted acres 
in the state. The west, north central and southeast areas 
provide the remaining crop. 

Weather during much of the growing season was 
generally very favorable. Most crops were in good to ex- 
cellent condition during the fall, but suffered some from 
the dry speD in late September. Gusty winds and shifting 
sand in early November caused Ught to moderate leaf bum 
in unprotected fields. The weather during December was 
unseasonably warm. Some fields came into production 
several weeks early. In early January, strong, cold winds 
caused severe damage to the remaining fall acreage. Con- 
ditions for the spring crop were mostly good although the 
season got off to a poor start due to adverse weather. Yields, 
size, quality and color were very good most of the season. 



5 



EGGPLANT 
1978-79 



Plantings of 3,100 acres were 29 percent above the 
1977-78 season. Yields averaged 585 bushels per acre, 75 
bushels below the previous season. Weather was generally 
very favorable during much of the growing season with the 
exception of the winter season. However, during late Dec- 
ember and early January, strong winds whipped plants, 
scarred fruit and burned tender leaves. Poor market condi- 
tions caused some abandonment of older fields. In early 
February, near freezing temperatures caused bloom drop- 
page and slowed growth and fruit set. Wind scarring lower- 
ed packout. Growing conditions during the spring quarter 
were very good but heavy rains in late April caused some 
plant damage. Quality, size and yields were generally good 
to very good. 

Production of eggplant increased to 1 .6 million bush- 
els, 10 percent above last year's production. Total sales in- 
creased to $6.8 miUion compared with $5.6 milUon a year 
earHer. The increase was due to 24 percent more harvested 
acres, higher production and price per bushel which offset 
the lower yields per acre. The season average price of $4.14 
per bushel is 34 cents higher than a year ago. The winter 
and spring crops were higher in price than a year earlier 
but the fall crop was lower. 



The distribution of marketings was generally normal. 
Harvest began in late September, reached a peak in Novem- 
ber and dropped during the winter. Harvest began to in- 
crease in April and reached a spring peak in June. Harvest 
was virtually complete by early Jiiy. The southeast area 
aroxmd Pompano accounted for 45.0 percent of the harvest- 
ed acreage. The northern and central areas combined con- 
tributed 49.3 percent of acreage harvested with the re- 
maining small acreage in the southwest. 

Production is generally continuous through the entire 
crop year in the southeast and southwest, while the crops 
in western, northern and central areas are for fall and spring 
harvest only. Those areas receive too much freezing weather 
to grow eggplant during the winter months. 

First sales were from cuttings in the western and 
northern growing areas in late September. Harvest followed 
the usual pattern and progressed southward in the fall, con- 
tinued through the winter in southern areas and then mov- 
ed back northward in the spring. 



ESCAROLE-ENDIVE 
1978-79 



Production of escarole and endive during the 1978-79 
season totaled 3.3 million crates, up .1 million crates from a 
year ago. The 6,500 acres harvested was up 400 acres from 
the previous season. Yields per acre averaged 515 crates 
compared with 535 crates the previous year. 

Prices during the season averaged $4.05 per crate, 
compared with $4.63 a year earlier. The total value of 
sales, at $13.5 million, was 10 percent below the previous 
year. 

The Everglades, which had 79 percent of the harvest- 
ed acreage in the 1978-79 season, began seeding in mid 
September. Weekly planting schedules continued through 
March. light harvest began in late October and supplies 
were continuous through early June. The mucklands 



aroimd ZeUwood provided good volume in the late spring 
months. The smaller acreage grown on Lake Placid and 
Sarasota mucklands also fum^hed supplemental supplies 
during much of the season. 

Sales started relatively slow in October but increased 
considerably to a good volume by November. Marketings 
reached peak levels in March. Good volume continued into 
May. Harvest declined seasonally and was over by early 
June. 

Growing conditions were generally favorable during 
most of the season. Very little if any damage was reported 
during the winter montiis. In early to mid April hot, dry 
weather caused some problems. Quality of escarole and 
endive was mostly good throughout the seascm.

LETTUCE 
1978-79 



Florida lettuce growers produced a record 2.6 million 
hundredweight during the 1978-79 season. This was 31 per- 
cent above the previous season. A 29 percent increase in 
acreage along with a yield increase of 4 cwt. per acre con- 
tributed to the record production. Average yield of 199 
cwt. per acre compares with 195 cwt. for the previous sea- 
son. The season average f.o.b. price of $18.75 per cwt. was 
34 cents below the average for the previous season. Prices 
were about the same as a year earUer for the fall quarter 
but were well above a year ago for the winter quarter. 
Prices during the spring quarter averaged well below the 
spring quarter a year earlier. 

Acreage, production and value statistics of lettuce in 
this bulletin combine the various types into a single esti- 
mate. The types in order of importance include iceberg, 56 
percent; romaine, 21 percent; Boston, 11 percent; bibb and 
leaf combined, 12 percent of the total acreage harvested. 
Iceberg continued the rapid growth that began several years 
ago. The Everglades muckland accounted for 87 percent of 
planted acreage and was the source of a continuous supply 
of lettuce which began in early November and ended in 
early June. Outside the Everglades, Ze 11 wood is the other 
major producing area, with Sarasota and the Lake Placid 



mucklands contributing light supplies during most of the 
season. 

Seeding was underway in early September. All areas 
were actively planting by early October. The Everglades and 
Sarasota areas had continuous plantings through March. 

light harvest was underway by late October and con- 
tinued light until mid November. Volume gained in late 
November and December, with growers actively cutting in 
most areas. The Everglades continued to provide the bulk 
of the volume during the winter period. Supplies peaked in 
March and April and declined to the season's end by early 
June. Volume from the Zellwood area was Hght during the 
winter months. Moderate suppUes are available from this 
area during the fall and spring seasons. 

Growing conditions in the early fall were hot and 
humid. However, growth was rapid. Cold temperatures 
during January caused some light damage to young foUage 
and reduced suppUes in the Zellwood area. Heavy volume 
was available statewide in March and April. Quality was 
generally good throughout the season. 



PEPPERS 
1978-1979 



During the 1978-79 season, Florida produced 8.1 mil- 
lion bushels of peppers, a 1 percent decline from the pre- 
vious year. The average yield of 445 bushels per acre was 3 
percent above the 434 bushels last season. Production was 
from 4 percent fewer acres. 

The season average f.o.b. price of $6.13 per bushel 
was up from an average of $5.17 for the previous year. The 
total value of $49.4 million was 17 percent above the pre- 
vious year. Prices were generally good during the winter 
period. Marketings were light in October but increased to 
a good level by December. Supplies decreased during the 
wdnter months but began an upward swing in April. The 
peak spring production occurred in May. The season then 
declined and was mostly over by the end of June. 



The 3 percent decrease in total planted acreage was 
the result of an 8 percent drop in the heavy producing 
southwest area. Increases in the north, north central, west 
central and southeast areas were not enough to offset the 
decrease. The southwest accounted for 54 percent of the 
state's total pepper acreage. The southeast had 21 percent; 
the north central area, 10 percent; the north, 8 percent; and 
the west central area, 7 percent. 

During September hot weather and dampoff neces- 
sitated excessive replanting to improve stands. Conditions 
during the remainder of the fall season were generally good 
to excellent. Strong, cold winds during the winter months 
caused foliage bum to young crops. Spring weather condi- 
tions were generally favorable. Yields were good to very 
good.

POTATOES 
1978-79 



Production of potatoes in 1979,includingboth winter 
and spring seasons, totaled 6 million cwt., up 6 percent 
from the previous year. A total of 30,700 acres were plant- 
ed, a decUne of slightly over 6 percent from the 32,800 
acres planted for the 1977-78 season. Of the total acres 
planted, 28,000 acres were harvested, 13 percent less than 
the year before. The value of the crop was $30.4 million, 
dovwi 13 percent from 1978. The decrease in value was 
attributed to the lower average price received for the 
Hastings crops. 

The average yield was a record at 215 cwt. per acre, 
exceeding the previous record yield of 206 cwt. set in 1977. 
The spring yields were up sharply from the previous year. 
In the Hastings area, which includes the three counties of 
Flagler, Putnam and St. Johns, the average yield was a re- 
cord high of 230 cwt. and well above the 170 cwt. produc- 
ed in 1978. Spring potatoes grown in aU other areas, rang- 
ing from the Ft. Myers area in the south to northern 
Escambia County in ihe Panhandle, averaged 180 cwt. per 
acre, well above the 125 cwt. the year before. The winter 
crop averaged 185 cwt., down 10 cwt. from the 1978 
winter season. 

The 1979 season average price for all potatoes at 
$5.06 per cwt. was $1.15 less than the previous season and 



the lowest price since the 1975 crop. Low prices received in 
May and June in the Hastings area held the all potato price 
to the low level. 



The "red-skirmed" varieties are the dominant variety 
grown for winter harvest in south Florida. Most of the 
winter crop is sold for table stock but a few are sold to the 
potato chip industry. In the Hastings area the "white skin- 
ned" varieties dominate. A large percentage of the crop is 
used in the potato chip industry. Both "whites" and "reds" 
are grown in the area and sold for table stock. 



The winter potato harvest was imderway in January 
but the crop was later than normal and harvest extended in- 
to the spring months, with March and April being the 
heaviest shipping period. Approximately 1 ,000 acres were 
abandoned when heavy rains hit the area late in the season. 
Harvest of the spring crop in the Hastings area got under- 
way in April with peak harvest in May. Digging continued 
into June but prices dropped considerably and many 
growers either quit harvesting or dug only the better yield- 
ing acreage. Abandonment in the area was much higher 
than usual. There was some effort to dig some acreage in 
July but this acreage was not very large. 



RADISHES 
1978-79 



In 1978-79, radish plantings amounted to 33,600 
acres compared with 32,000 acres planted the previous 
year. Acres harvested totaled 29,600 - a record high - 
compared with 28,200 in 1977-78. Yield per acre averag- 
ed 340 cartons compared with 287 cartons the previous 
season. The crop was valued at $21.9 million, down 1 per- 
cent from a year earlier. The average f.o.b. price was $2.17 
per carton, down 57 cents from the previous year. 



A good supply of both red and white radishes was 
available from ZeUwood, Lake Placid and the Everglades 
from October through May with a Ught volume going in- 
to June. The fall peak harvest occurred in November. The 
spring peak occurred in April. Seeding of the 1978-79 crop 
was underway in the Everglades and north central areas in 
early September. Early crops progressed very favorably. 
Light harvest was underway in late September and became 
quite active in mid November. Supplemental suppUes were 
available from Lake Placid and Sarasota during the year. 



SPINACH FOR PROCESSING 
1978-79 



Spinach statistics have not been published separately 
for Florida in recent years in order to avoid disclosure of 
individual operations. However, data for these seasons have 
been included in the "other vegetables" series shown in this 



publication. Data for 1973 and earlier are available upon 
request. Yields per acre and harvested acres declined due to 
unfavorable weather during the winter months in the north 
central area where most of the crop is grown.

SQUASH 
1978-79 



Rorida's production of squash during the 1978-79 
season, at 1.9 miUion bushels, is .2 million bushels above 
last year. Harvested acreage totaling 13,350 acres, increas- 
ed 13 percent from the previous year. The yield, at 139 
bushels per acre, was down 4 bushels from the previous 
year. 

The average f.o.b. price of $7.51 per bushel was up 
$3.23 from last season. Total f.o.b. cash receipts amounted 
to nearly $14.0 million. Prices were generally favorable 
throughout the season. 

Florida produces acorn, butternut, yellow crook- 
neck, yellow straightneck, white and zucchini squash. Dade 
County with 25 percent of the state's harvested acreage in 
1978-79, produces yellow crookneck almost exclusively. 
The Pompano area, in addition to being a major producing 
area, is also an important market for squash grown in other 
areas of the state. This is especially true when local supplies 



reach low levels during the winter months. The southwest 
area produces a continuous supply of most types. Central, 
north and west Florida provide a good volume of most 
types during the fail and spring season. 

Squash is one of the few crops grown in Florida that 
is shipped every month of the year, al though shipments 
during the summer are usually light and confined mostly to 
local markets. The 1978-79 season got otf to a good start. 
Marketings increased to a fall peak in November and early 
December before showing a seasonal decline during the 
winter months. In late October and mid to late November, 
heavy rains delayed field work and reduced quality, yields 
and packout. During the winter months, Jaimary througli 
March, cold temperatures and strong winds slowed growth, 
caused extensive foliage bum and plant kill to both old and 
young crops. Weather was favorable during the spring 
quarter although there was some fohage bum and fruit 
scarring. Peak marketings for the season occurred in April. 



STRAWBERRIES 
1978-79 



Florida strawberry growers produced 3.7 million flats 
of berries during the 1978-79 season, up 32 percent from 
the previous year. Harvested acreage totaling 2,400 acres 
increased 20 percent from a year earlier. Average yield of 
1,561 flats per acre increased from the 1,415 flats a year 
earlier. The f.o.b. return per flat for the season was $5.91, 
up 3 cents from the previous season. The value of the crop 
was a record $22.2 niillion, up $5.5 million from the $16.6 
million received a year ago. 

Laying of plastic and other field work was in fuU 
swing by late September in the important Plant City- 
Ruskin area. Transplanting began by mid October and in- 
creased rapidly for several weeks.Transplantings were 
virtually complete by mid November, li^t harvest was 



underway by mid December in the Plant City and Dade 
areas. Early harvested berries were primarily for local use 
and roadside stands, ligjit shipments began in January and 
reached peak volume in March and April. Most of the com- 
mercial harvest was completed by late April. U-Pick harvest 
continued active during May. Plant growth was good. Cold 
weather in early January caused some fruit and bloom loss. 
Plants improved in late January and bloom and fruit set 
were abundant by mid February. Rains during several oc- 
casions in February and early March reduced quality. 
Volume was up sharply by late March and early April. 
Quality and size were very good. First harvest was under- 
way in Bradford County by early April and the season was 
drawing to a close around mid May. Yields and quality 
were excellent.

TOMATOES 
1978-79 



The total value of the Florida tomato crop for fresh 
and processing utilization increased from last season. The 
$220.2 miUion was 21 percent above the previous season 
and reached an all time record high value. The main factor 
contributing to the increase was the very mild late winter 
and spring seasons which enabled growers to get consider- 
ably more pickings than usual. Prices held up weU which 
gave the incentive to extend the harvest period much longer 
than usual, especially in Dade County and the Immokolee 
area. 

Total production of 34.8 milhon 30-pound carton 
equivalents was 16 percent above the previous season. The 
fresh market chaimel utilized 96 percent of the production 
and the remairung 4 percent was for processing. The Pal- 
metto-Ruskin area accounted for 37.3 percent of the pro- 
duction; Dade County, 19.2 percent; the southwest, 30.8 
percent and the Ft. Pierce-Pompano area, 8.8 percent. The 
remainder of the production was in the west, north, and 
north central areas. 

The state average yield, at 817 (30-pound) cartons 
per acre, was up 129 cartons from the previous season. This 
increase was due to the very mild crop year and favorable 
market which enabled growers to extend the harvest season. 
Dade County suppUes the bulk of winter tomatoes. Fall 
shipments peaked in December, which accounted for 14.4 
percent of the season's market sales. Spring production 
reached a peak in May, which amounted to 26.4 percent of 
the season's total. Tomatoes are usually harvested contin- 
uously from late October to mid June. 



The Pahnetto-Ruskin area continued to be the acreage 
leader, with 13,050 acres harvested. The southwest area 
ranked second, harvestiag 11,200 acres. Dade County har- 
vested 10,750 acres, and the Ft. Pierce-Pompano area, 
4,000 acres. There were 1,800 acres harvested in the north, 
north central, and west areas, 13 percent more than last 
year. Most of this increase in acreage was in Gadsden 
County. 

Tomato planting got imderway in the Gadsden County 
area in July and started in other areas in August. Heavy rains 
in early September delayed plantings, washed beds, damag- 
ed young seedlings in low areas and leached fertilizer in 
some fields. Damage was minimal. Hot weather caused ex- 
cessive replanting and bloom droppage. Mostly favorable 
weather prevailed throughout the remainder of the fall sea- 
son. During the early winter season, strong, cold winds in 
January caused considerable leaf bum and fruit scarring. 
Below normal temperatures and strong, cold winds in 
February slowed plant growth and caused some bloom and 
fruit droppage along with some young plant loss. Weather 
conditions were very favorable for the spring season, al- 
though strong winc^ in early April whipped plants and 
scarred some fruit. In mid May, light damage in low spots 
from heavy rains occurred in the Palmetto-Ruskin area. 
Minor hail damage was also reported in some areas. Most 
growers were able to get considerably more pickings than 
normal as prices held up well which gave the incentive to 
extend the harvest period. 



WATERMELONS 
1978-79 



Watermelon acreage planted during the 1978-79 sea- 
son totaled 50,000 acres - 15 percent less than the previous 
season. Of the total acres planted, only 43,000 acres were 
harvested ~ down 14 percent from 1978. The crop of 6.5 
million cwt. was down 19 percent from the year before and 
the lowest production since the 1961-62 season. The aver- 
age yield varied considerably by areas with the western 
counties averaging only 90 cwt. per acre and counties in 
the southwest averaging 232 cwt. per acre. The State aver- 
age was 150 cwt. per acre, down 10 cwt. from the previous 
year and the lowest average since the 1973-74 season. 

The average price received was a record 5 cents per 
pound compared with 3.4 cents received last season and the 
previous high of 4.4 cents per pound received for the 1974- 
75 crop. Higher prices in the southern and central areas 
helped offset lower prices in the north and west. The value 
of the crop was $32.3 million, second only to the 1974-75 
crop which had a value of $35.2 million. 

The watermelon harvest usually begins in the Immok- 
alee area in late March and early April, depending on 
weather conditions. For the third consecutive season, har- 
vest did not get underway until May. The season progresses 
northward into the central areas during May and the 
northern areas in June and comes to an end in the western 
counties by mid July. As usual June was the heaviest ship- 
ping month during the 1978-79 season. 



First plantings were made in the Immokalee area in 
late December. Cold, wet weather prevented good seed 
germination and spot replanting was necessary. Vine 
growth was very slow and the crop made Uttie progress 
early in the season. The first melons did not move from the 
area until late April and there was only light volume until 
early May. 



Planting was underway in the north central areas by 
mid February and in the north and west in late February 
and early March. Harvest was underway in the central areas 
by mid May and in the north by early June. Production 
prospects were very good in these areas but many growers 
were caught with ripe melons in the field by the truckers 
strike during the last half of June. Because of the lack of 
transportation, many fields were abandoned and a large 
acreage was picked only once. Tliis contributed heavily to 
the low yield and high acreage abandormient in the north- 
em and western growing areas. 

Harvest continued into July in both the north and 
west. A shortage of trucks remained as a major problem 
until the end of the season. By the last half of July the 
shipping season was over except for an occasional load. 
Local sales continued through the month of July.

OTHER CROPS 
1978-79 



Cantaloups are grown in Florida primarily in the 
southwest and north central areas. Much of the production 
is sold through roadside stands and local markets. The peak 
harvest period is normally May and June. Harvest begins 
in the southwest and progresses northward seasonally. 

Acreage continues at a relatively low level. However, 
this crop is not part of the regular statistical program for 
vegetables and melons. Researchers are working to develop 
several new varieties that wiU. be better adapted to Florida's 
soils and cUmate. There appears to be some promise that 
acreage may expand in the future. 

Cauliflower continues to expand in the ZeUwood, 
HiUsborough-Manatee and Everglades areas. SuppUes are 
available from November through April. At the present 
time statistics are not available for pubUcation. However, 
if this crop continues to grow it could become part of the 
regular statistical program at some time in the future. Ship- 
ment data are being recorded by the Market News Service. 
In the 1978-79 season there were 65 thousand hundred- 
weight shipped out-of-state. This converts to 295 thousand, 
22-pound cartons. Data for the previous crop year are 
not available. 

Sub-tropical vegetable production increased sub- 
stantially from the previous year due primarily to improved 
yields. Improved fertilization and spray programs con- 
tributed to the better yields. Most of the acreage is grown 
in Dade County. Commercial production began in the 
early 60's. Sub-tropical vegetables is a colloquial expression 
appUed to certain vegetables eaten primarily by those of 
Latin American and Caribbean origin. The most common 
name for each crop followed by the scientific name is listed 
below. Other common terms for the various vegetables are 
shown in parentheses. The crops consist primarily of 
boniatos-ipomea batatos (sweet potato); calabaza-cucur- 
bita (pumpkin); malanga-xanthosoma sagitaefoUum (da- 
sheen, yautias); and yuca-monihot esculenta (sweet cas- 
sava). The boniato, calabaza and malanga constitutes the 
bulk of the production. The Dade County Extension Ser- 
vice reported 10,470 acres of sub-tropical vegetables, 
planted in the 1978 calendar year. Peak production of the 
malanga occurs in February through April. Efforts are now 
underway to even out the supply throughout the year. 
Miami is an important point of consumption for the Florida 



production. Also, considerable amounts are consumed in 
the Tampa Bay area. The suppUes shipped out of the state 
are primarily for the New York City and Philadelphia areas. 

CoUard, turnip, mustard and other greens are grown 
throughout the state and centered around the large popula- 
tion areas and in the muck soils of the Everglades and Zell- 
wood areas. Good volume is available November through 
March. Shipments totaled 141,000 cwt. during the 1978-79 
season, about the same as the 140,000 cwt. shipped a year 
earlier. 

Dkra_is grown in many areas of the state during the 
warm season of the year. However, Dade County produces 
okra for local use as well as for shipments to other states. 
Peak production takes place in May and June v^dth a good 
supply in November. 

Green onions and leeks are produced in the north 
central areas. SuppHes are marketed primarily for local 
use at roadside stands and markets. Supplies of dry onions 
are limited. Most of the dry onions are produced in 
southern areas of the state. 

Parsley is available in both the curley and plain types. 
The bulk of the commercial volume shipped to other states 
is produced in the Everglades and ZeUwood areas. Light 
volume sold for local use is available from the Sarasota, 
Lake Racid and other areas. 

Southern peas are grovra primarily in the northwest, 
west central and Everglades areas of Florida. Dade County 
also produces a considerable amount of southern peas. 
Light supplies are available September through December. 
Heavy movement occurs during May and June, especially in 
northwest Florida. A high percentage of the crop goes to 
processing. Good supplies are sold through local markets 
for fresh use. Market News Service shipment statistics for 
out-of-state markets, shows 13,000 cwt. for fresh market 
during the 1978-79 season. 

Watercress is available the year round. The major 
source of supply is Oviedo. Most of the production is 
shipped to northern and eastern markets in the United 
States. A limited supply is available from local state farmers 
markets, especially the Sanford Market.
